Doesn't take much power if you remove all the bolts between the trailer body and the frame before doing this camera stunt.

And I am surprised that they got the trailer into the garage in the first place! Maybe the trailer was there before the garage was built?

I believe it was a narrow alley which narrowed down to where it got stuck....

It's a set up in order to generate clicks and thus generate revenue. There are a bunch of these, including hill climbing with an under-powered front wheel drive vehicle.
Fake, in other words.

The steering wheel and driver in the video appear to be on the right hand side of the vehicle ( Passenger side in the US)
Based on that fact was this video shot in Canada ?
That might explain a lot of things.
Maybe the garage door is metric and the trailer is US

If you go to the Youtube link, you can read the comments. A translation; a "fag" is a cigarette and a "poof" is a homosexual. Lager is lager. You can actually see a hand, holding a pint, enter the frame at screen left toward the end.

"how did you get it in? so funny you lame ass. go back to your pub for a fag and a pint o' lager, you poof! - says one.
